By THE LATE LORD ESSENDOK
THE business of shipowning is one of the most complex of
all the industrial occupations. It has romance to recom-
mend it, and if is never-ending in the presentation of
problems which are not merely new in themselves but
also have a great variety of different angles. It is there-
fore most important that the student of shipowning should
secure a firm grasp of the fundamentals, and SHIPPING
PRACTICE is a valuable addition to the Student's Library.
No textbook of reasonable dimensions could possibly
cover the ground completely, and no textbook could take
the place of practical experience, but SHIPPING PRACTICE
will give the student a very fair idea and knowledge of
"the wide range of subjects which are involved in the
running of ships under modern conditions.
